David Takes Jerusalem

1 Chronicles 11

4 And David and all Israel f went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus, g where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the land. 5 But the inhabitants of Jebus said to David, "You shall not come in here!" Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion (that is, the City of David). 6 Now David said, "Whoever attacks the Jebusites first shall be 1 chief and captain." And Joab the son of Zeruiah went up first, and became chief. 7 Then David dwelt in the stronghold; therefore they called it 2 the City of David. 8 And he built the city around it, from 3 the Millo to the surrounding area. Joab 4 repaired the rest of the city. 9 So David h went on and became great, and the LORD of hosts was with i him.
